Who we are


Empowering people to embrace continued learning as a pathway to a brighter future. 


Families are thriving, adults are self-sufficient, and children aspire to lead successful lives.


College of Hope was founded in 1999 as an extension of Housing Hope.

This program was designed to be an adult-education program with the intent of empowering families to embrace continued learning as a pathway to a brighter future. The four main class categories we offer are:


Family life

Economic Well-being

Health & Wellness

Courses are taught by expert instructors from the community and are designed to help individuals reflect and grow from personal life experiences, as a way to learn more effectively.

We now teach classes in the following cities:








College of Hope is dedicated to assisting Snohomish County residents in removing barriers and developing a solid foundation of knowledge from which to build an independent life. College of Hope's innovative approach to life-skills education; including transportation to classes, a freshly cooked meal, and childcare while in session, has helped thousands of community members take the next step in improving their own self-efficacy.
